AISA GN

The AISA GN was a prototype four-seat autogyro developed in Spain between 1971 and 1982.

It featured an extensively glazed cabin fitted with a pusher engine and tricycle undercarriage.

A separate tail fin was carried at the end of two booms mounted to stub wings.

The prototype was developed with a 200 hp engine.

The aircraft suffered from an extremely prolonged development, but finally took to the air on 20 July 1982.

Shortly thereafter, however, it was damaged and finally abandoned.
